In reply to:

whatta: Does it have silent shutter?

I cannot understand why it does not have gps (like almost all phones) and why the viewfinder got smaller??
760d 0.82x
700d 0.85x
100d 0.87x

Btw does that mean we can link the metering to the AF point?
"(1) Evaluative metering (linked to all AF points)"

Seems to be a big step-up from prev models and not highlighted:
transmissive LCD in viewfinder

The Nikon D3300 had built-in GPS, but the newer Nikon D5500 doesn't, so I guess it's a trend.

olypan: Body and design page: 'In this photo of the 750D you can see just how compact it is'.
What! Are you deranged, it looks absolutely enormous. What is this, Jurrassic Park 5 the dinosaurs fight back?

For comparison, it's 13% narrower and 13% shorter than a Canon 5D Mark III. At the extreme end, it's 19% narrower and 36% shorter than a Canon 1C X.

The lack of a built-in EVF means that the eventual street price will be lower. (People who don't want an EVF, won't have to pay for one.)

People who do want an (optional) EVF, get the additional feature of one that "pivots up to 90 degrees".

Among others, I suspect that people who started photography with a smartphone don't care about the lack of an EVF. Over time, I suspect that fewer and fewer people will be interested in viewfinders.

Isn't that *really* small for a 24-600mm equivalent zoom on a 1" sensor?

It would be a shame to waste a good sensor by putting a crappy lens in front of it.

It's no wonder that it's expensive.

lolopasstrail: Who cares whether "Canon is finally taking mirrorless seriously?" What matters is Is Canon returning shareholder value?

Making money is what Canon needs to do, not pursue trivial religious wars for their own sake, as fostered by the interwebs desperately in search of hits.

In the mean time, Olympus recently reported "Net sales in the Imaging Systems Business during the nine months ended December 31, 2014 amounted to ¥64,306 million (down 14.3% year on year), while operating loss amounted to ¥6,213 million (compared with an operating loss of ¥4,393 million in the same period of the previous fiscal year)." They also reported that sales of their mirrorless cameras were below target.

I don't blame Canon for not aggressively rushing into a money-losing sector.

The M3 is a T6i/750D in a smaller box, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

The only "problem" is that the Canon UK web site put the two cameras in different categories. Big deal. So what.

The USA is where mirrorless cameras come to die, and be dumped at deep discounts. :-)

Canon estimates that they will sell 6.4 million interchangeable lens cameras this year. Not bad, for a company that does everything wrong. :-)

Daedbird: How does a press release become a featured story?

Honestly, I understood making the Canon 5DS hands-on a featured story...you touched the camera.

But to make this release a feature story during CP+ week, well it speaks loudly on what drives DPR....

Nikon has so few CP+ announcements, that DPR had to write about *something*. :-)

I look forward to DPR's "First Impressions Review" of this empty camera body. :-)

I guess this decision is part of the Canon SEE IMPOSSIBLE campaign.

They saw that it was impossible to get many people in the USA to buy mirrorless cameras. :-)

People who live in the USA:

Just buy a Canon T6i, and pretend that it's a fat M3, with a viewfinder and more features. :-)

I guess Canon doesn't want to popularize the concept of mirrorless cameras in the USA. Here, most people have never heard of a mirrorless camera, and Canon wants to keep it that way.

In reply to:

MikeFairbanks: I currently shoot with a 6D and the included kit lens (24-105L). It's a great setuo, obviously, but previously I had the original EOS-M with 22mm lens, and I really loved that camera.

I would have kept it, but I needed every penny I could scrape up for my current outfit. I wasn't interested in rejoining the M series when the M2 was released because it wasn't a major upgrade (and was pretty much only available through ebay). But this 3 might be a winner.

I am starting to believe what I once thought was just hype: Mirrors are coming to an end soon.

The only limit is autofocus speed. Once that matches the SLR, then the days of the big box cameras are over.

Finally, there is a huge advantage of mirrorless thst is rarely discussed: shutter sound. If you shoot performance, weddings, political events, and still photography for film and TV, silence is golden. Mirrors make noise.

Not all mirrorless cameras are quiet. DPR states "Nevertheless, the Sony a7's shutter is loud, whether in electronic shutter mode or not."
